American Idol 2011: Stefano Langone
American Idol Top 13 finalist sings for his life tonight.
Stefano Langone had to sing for his life last week when he was selected as one of the judge’s wildcards to be put into the American Idol top 13. He made it into the top 13 and tonight takes the stage for the first time since surviving all that drama. Stefano will sing “Lately” By Stevie Wonder. This might seem like a strange choice for him, but at its heart this song is a ballad and a crooner like Stefano could make it his own and do a good job with it.
One thing Stefano Langone has going for him with this song is that it isn’t a song that is normally affiliated with Stevie Wonder. It was actually covered by R&B act Jodeci in 1993 and was a bigger hit for them than it was for Stevie so it is possible more people in the audience will know it more from there than as a Stevie Wonder song. Still, Stefano seems to be one of those guys who are always just hanging on in this competition so he will need to step up tonight and prove that he belongs among the American Idol Top 13 and that the judges were right in picking him over some other obviously talented singers who didn’t make it.
